IDEALIST Quotes

* We were idealists. We thought that when we got the vote the whole pattern of politics would be greatly improved and would be dominated by women.
-- Jessie Daniel Ames

"At Idealist, our goal has always been to help people turn their good intentions into action"
-- Ami Dar (Idealist.org)

“Man is born a predestined idealist, for he is born to act.
To act is to affirm the worth of an end,
and to persist in affirming the worth of an end is to make an ideal.”
-- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Idealist connects people, organizations, and resources
to help build a world where all people can live free and dignified lives.
-- Idealist.org

I'm an idealist without illusions.
-- John F. Kennedy

I believe that hope for the future depends on each of us taking nonviolence into our hearts and minds and developing new and imaginative structures which are nonviolent and life-giving for all. Some people will argue that this is too idealistic. I believe it is very realistic. I am convinced that humanity is fast evolving to this higher consciousness. For those who say it cannot be done, let us remember that humanity learned to abolish slavery. Our task now is no less than the abolition of violence and war .... We can rejoice and celebrate today because we are living in a miraculous time. Everything is changing and everything is possible.
-- Mairead Corrigan Maguire

"I have to be an optimist and say that it might get better. I am a mixture of idealist and realist."
-- Sir Roger Moore

* "Sometimes older folks tell me: 'I was idealistic and thought I could change the world once, too, but then I grew up.' I'm trying to help us change our definition of growing up, so that it ceases to mean giving up on our ideals, and comes to mean learning how to live our dreams, every day, on the Earth. I want to awaken the passion and creativity of youth, combine it with the wisdom, experience and insight of elders, and transform our world."
~ Ocean Robbins

The idealists dream and the dream is told, and the practical men listen and ponder and bring back the truth and apply it to human life, and progress and growth and higher human ideals come into being and so the world moves ever on.
-- Anna Howard Shaw

Any idealist who tries to join the Peace Corps
must realize he is not going to change the world overnight.

~ Sargent Shriver

The developed world has a vast, under-utilized asset that is not being leveraged to its best advantage: idealistic people who want to make the world a better place. For most of a century, idealistic people have been encouraged to use anger, protest, lobbying, and legal action in order to make the world a better place. While most certainly some of these behaviors and activities were necessary, we have reached the point at which the social benefit of such behaviors is decreasing. We have reached the point at which creation, rather than attack, ought to be the first obligation of reformers. The social entrepreneurship movement is the first tip of this iceberg. We want to create a world in which all idealists realize that the creation of new enterprises is the most powerful way to make positive change in the world. If all the energy that is currently invested in zero-sum political conflict was gradually transferred to the committed creation of sustainable enterprises, the cumulative impact on behalf of the good would be extraordinary.
-- Michael Strong

I think it's realistic to have hope. One can be a perverse idealist and say the easiest thing: 'I despair. The world's no good.' That's a perverse idealist. It's practical to hope, because the hope is for us to survive as a human species. That's very realistic.
-- Studs Terkel
